MARIETTA – The City of Marietta is pleased to announce that members of the Marietta Fire Department and Marietta Police Department were honored on Monday, October 2, 2017 at the Cobb Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Public Safety Appreciation Breakfast.

The Cobb Chamber’s Annual Public Safety Appreciation Breakfast and Appreciation Week held October 2 – 8, 2017 allows the community to pay tribute to all public safety personnel. To kick off the highly anticipated week, the Chamber hosted a Public Safety Breakfast to celebrate the public safety nominees.

Lieutenant Herman Trautwein with the Marietta Fire Department received the highly coveted 2017 Employee of the Year Award. Lt. Trautwein has over 26 of experience with the MFD and served as a sergeant in the Air Force Reserve for over 20 years. On June 25, 2016, Trautwein was on vacation at Daytona Beach when a storm hit. On the way back to his room, he saw two people who had been struck by lightning while they were wading in shallow water. Disregarding his own safety, Trautwein sprinted toward the beach to the injured victims and was able to revive the man. However, the female passed just after making it to the hospital for treatment.

Marietta Police Department’s R.A.D. Instructors Sergeant Jeremy Slatton, Sergeant Amy Valente, Detective Mark Erion, Detective Gretchen Ingram, and Officer Paul Hill were nominated for the Award of Merit for helping to empower over 100 women and several hundred children through the radWomen and radKids self-defense programs. The mission of RAD is to provide skills and training to recognize, avoid, resist, and escape violence, as well as other forms of victimization. The ultimate purpose of the program is to challenge society to evolve into an existence where violence is not an acceptable part of daily life.

Marietta Police Department’s Morning Watch Patrol Officers Scott Davis, Michael Malcolm, and Kenyon Jackson were awarded the Award of Merit for their response to a call on August 14, 2016 involving auto theft which resulted in Officer Scott Davis being shot by one of the suspects. Officer Davis was unable to stand, but he remained calm and realized that his firearm had malfunctioned. He worked to clear the malfunction and stayed focused on the suspects. He was able to communicate the description of the vehicle that fled from the scene with additional suspects. Officers Davis, Malcolm and Jackson displayed all the qualities of highly trained officers—protecting each other and the residents of the City of Marietta.

Marietta Police Department’s Officer Scott Davis was awarded the Medal of Valor for the way he handled the events on August 14, 2016.
